Student Volunteers

To sign up to volunteer - click here!  
Volunteer Signup Deadline - August 15!


You must sign up through the online link above.  We will only take volunteers from this online sign up site.

Volunteers are assigned in the order they sign up so the earlier you sign up the better your chances
to be selected for one of these limited assignments.

 
Are you wondering how this works?
1.  YOU MUST BE A STUDENT(undergraduate or graduate) TO VOLUNTEER
2.  YOU MUST REGISTER FOR THE MEETING.
Being a volunteer is separate from meeting registration. 
You will need a badge to gain access to sessions and events. 
We encourage you to register for Early Bird discounts.
3.  AT THE END OF YOUR WORK HOURS, YOU WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR:
$125 credit for each 4 hour shift ($250 for two shifts) towards your registration fee.
 
No cash will be refunded if registration fees paid is less than credit earned.  For each 4 hours you volunteer and complete your assignment you will receive a voucher of $125 credit to be used towards registration fees.  Maximum allowed are two shifts for $250 earned credit.   This will be enough to cover a full early bird registration for a student member. Students will be accepted and assigned on a first come, first served basis.
